Get Your Cougar On With Getting Down To Business #TWRP #EroticRomance #cougar #contest

I'm going to try to start doing a spotlight every Friday for The Wild Rose Press authors only. This week I'm featuring Ginger Ring's debut release, Getting Down To Business. I liked this hot read because it was a cougar story, but it was also more. We get the meet, the hot and sexy first greet, and then we get to see the turns things take when the sparks settle and these two realize they have a new relationship: boss/employee.

There's a contest, too! Enter to win a chance at a $10 The Wild Rose Press gift certificate. Good luck!



Getting Down To Business Blurb...Tired of living life out of a suitcase, traveling auto parts sales representative Jessie Knutson jumps at the
chance for a position close to home. When a flat tire keeps her from an interview appointment and the hot tow truck driver awakens her inner cougar, she realizes too much time away has done a number on her libido. Now the only position she wants involves being naked and pressed tightly against a hot, younger man whose eyes say she's more than a roadside pickup.

BJ Spencer has no time for love with an auto parts store to run, though he yearns to find the right woman someday. So when the smoking hot redhead he rescues alongside the road gives him a sexy smile, he remembers sometimes a man needs to enjoy the finer things in life. Long legs encased in thigh-highs are definitely fine, but Jessie seems to be total perfection in a tempting package. BJ just might be able to make both business and pleasure work for him this time.

Excerpt From Getting Down To Business...
The driver's side window rolled down and a young, handsome face poked out. “Afternoon, ma'am. Do you need some help with your car?” He had dark hair, smoky eyes, and sexy stubble. He was gorgeous.

Finally finding her voice, she answered, “I’m so glad to see you. I’ve got a flat. I'm afraid my cell doesn't work and I really didn't want to have to change my tire in a skirt. “ Even though it was true, she still felt foolish rambling on. She blushed and kicked an imaginary stone with her foot before resting her hands on her hips.

He cocked his head when he heard her answer. She had such a low, raspy voice that she was often mistaken for a man. That worked to her advantage as garage owners were more likely to make an appointment with someone they thought was a man and very off guard when they found out she wasn’t.

“Well, let me take a look and see what we can do.” He grinned and turned off the engine.

His low, rich voice had a slight Southern drawl. To hell with the car, she wanted him to do some service work on her. Just the sound of it made her panties wet. What a girl wouldn't give to have him whisper sweet nothings in her ear while feeling the breeze of his breath on her neck! Jessie’s heart skipped a beat and her knees weakened.

The truck door squeaked open. He eased out of the wrecker. His work boots sounded on the hot pavement as he advanced in her direction. Jessie bit her lip as she did a quick scan of the rest of him. The man was tall and lean with a certain swagger to his step. He wore blue denim jeans slightly worn at the knees and what looked to be black motorcycle boots. His light blue work shirt, unbuttoned and hanging loose, showcased a hairy chest and six pack abs. Yummy. The initials BJ embroidered on the pocket sent another line of erotic pictures floating across her thoughts.

Mike Faricy Releases Ting-A-Ling, A Dev Haskell Book #suspense #crimefiction

Mike Faricy visited a few months ago with an interview and a peek at his last release, Case Shot (Case 6, Dev Haskell-Investigator.) I don't read much for fun because of all of the editing and other things I have to do, but Mike gifted me with a copy and I decided to give a new genre a try. I loved it! His lead character, Private Investigator Dev Haskell is a lot of fun. He's got a sense of humor as well as a keen sense of intuition when it comes to the cases he solves. I found the book to be well-written, with all of the ends tied up neatly. There was some passion, lots of danger and suspense with colorful characters. Definitely a great weekend escape (I read fast.) 

So now Mike is back with the next case for Dev Haskell in Ting-A-Ling (Case 7) and I can't wait to see what Dev's gotten himself into now. Here's the description Mike sent along... 

Ting-a-ling Description

When Private Investigator Dev Haskell crawls out of a warm bed to answer a middle of the night phone call he ends up offering to help the sexy voice on the other end. It’s such a simple request. All he has to do is deliver a message for a beautiful client. It seems she wants to meet with a former business partner and discuss his payment terms, if only she could find him. Dev is more than up for the task, after all, how hard could it be?

But things are never as they appear. Dev locates the man and delivers the message only to find himself a suspect of increasing interest in a missing person case. Suddenly, he can’t find his client and he can’t find her business partner. That becomes the least of his problems the moment a body turns up. He’s suddenly on the hook for murder and all the evidence is pointing toward him.

Haunted by a childhood experience, Dev will need all his skills and a good deal of luck to solve this case and save himself. Ting-A-Ling demonstrates yet again why Mike Faricy have been called America’s hottest new mystery writer… (The Dirty Lowdown)

Ting-A-Ling Blurb

After answering Danielle’s middle of the night phone call private investigator Dev Haskell offers to help. It’s
a simple task, all he has to do is deliver a message to her former business partner. The next thing he knows Dev is involved in a missing person case and he can’t find his client or her business partner. That turns out to be the least of his problems when he finds himself on the hook for murder and all the evidence points toward him.

Meanwhile, an incident from his childhood continues to haunt Dev, with his very freedom hanging in the balance everything seems to be beyond his control. He’ll need all his skill and a good deal of luck to save himself. In a tale fraught with danger, Mike Faricy, Master of the Bizarre lays one twist on top of another until a murder rap becomes the least of Dev’s problems.

About Mike Faricy...

I was born and raised in Minnesota and I still live there part of the year. I am the oldest of five. My wife and I have a long distance marriage, she lives in Dublin, Ireland and I live in St. PaulMinnesota. We’re together more often than not, but from time to time we may go 6-8 weeks without seeing one another. That said, we talk every day on Skype and I dare say we may talk more than many couples living under the same roof. We are both tied to our respective areas although we’re sort of looking for that warm winter get-away. That knocks Minnesota out of the running and Dublin at 38F and rainy in the winter isn’t a heavy contender when it comes to sunshine. Still with family and friends the get-away may only be for a couple of weeks. Usually about the time my wife has had enough of my direction and if my chores are finished I suddenly find myself dropped off at the Dublin airport with my luggage.

Christi Snow's Release of Snowcroft Lost #mm and #Contest #romanticsuspense #gblt

My good friend, Christi Snow, is releasing a new series today!

Snowcroft Lost (book 1, Snowcroft Men) takes place in the sleepy, touristy village of Snowcroft, New Mexico. This friends-to-lovers romance has lies, danger, deception and lots of tender moments as these two gorgeous men find their way to happily ever after.

She's also sponsoring a contest to celebrate her release day. She's giving away a signed print copy of The Shadow Of Mudflap, a special mug and some official Christi Snow swag.

Secrets and Lies…
Everyone has them. Big ones. Little ones.

For Trevor Mayne and Jamie Vaughn, secrets and lies are how they’ve made their fourteen year friendship work. Don’t talk about it. Ignore it and it won’t be real. Pretend like everything’s fine between the two of them.

Jamie can’t live like this anymore. He’s in love with Trevor, his best friend who just happens to be straight. Tired of hiding his feelings, he decides to walk away. From their friendship. From his hometown. From his business.

But before Jamie gets a chance to leave, a freak accident leaves Trevor with amnesia. A new blank perspective leaves him confused about the inconsistencies of what he’s told his life should be vs. the feelings that he knows he has. Now those secrets and lies, that should be safer than ever, are suddenly front and center and changing everything between them.

Their world is at risk because their secrets and lies aren’t the only ones at play here. There’s a bigger lie out there and it could just destroy everything as they get closer and closer to the secret hidden in depths of the Snowcroft forest.
Available now on Amazon
